Gardeners' Notes:

Positive PlantMatch On Feb 11, 2011, PlantMatch from Brunswick, GA wrote:

The Spinner Gerbera is the largest plant and flower of all Gerberas. As you can see the flowers easily grow larger than an adult's hand. Does very well in containers but even better in the ground. Height can be 24-30" and 24 inches wide in the ground for Spinner series. Seeds are not true to type so not worth trying.

Currently the Patented plant is not available in the US anymore, but hopefully it can be brought back to market. All are tissue cultured starter plants. Out for 2011. :(
